Its 9.20pm and the owl chick is perched on the edge of the box again the question is will he make another attempt at freedom and end up on the ground again if so I hope it decides to conceal itself or clambers up a tree out of harms way. Our property is quite close to the road so I hope it doesn't wander out of our garden boundary. Here is a photo of mother owl up against a trunk. I took it this afternoon. You can just make out a cock blackbird giving it some 'grief'. I'm surprised the blackbirds have got any voices left as the owl has to face a constant barrage of alarm calls.
